An update from last month’s posting about “Die Hard 5” in need of a director, word out today is that John Moore (director of the film version of the video game hit, “Max Payne”) will be directing. Never saw “Max Payne”, I may have to check to see if it is on Netflix streaming to see if I trust this guy with directing.
When I heard Chris Nolan was directing “Batman Begins” back in 2005 (or was it 2004) I went out and got “Memento” and I gave him the approval. When I heard Len Wiseman was directing “Die Hard 4” (now known as “Live Free or Die Hard”) I went out and got “Underworld” and “Underworld: Evolution” and after the second one I gave him the approval.
I don’t know this Moore guy, so I’m going to have to review his credentials.
